A robot gone mad!

A newly constructed military robot escapes from the research center where it is birthed. Can it be recovered before its programming leads to an inevitable violent and destructive showdown? And what kind of person do you call anyway, when an escaped war machine needs to be quietly reclaimed before all hell breaks loose?

A short story of about 4200 words.

About the Author

Alpert L Pine lives and writes in a small cabin, off the grid, in the Northwest United States. Once per week, he treks to the nearest town on foot—rain, snow or shine—and spends the day transferring his material into a digital format, with the help of the kindly librarians whom he has befriended. When he's not writing, he spends much of his time with a metal detector, looking for a rumored Templar treasure which is said to be buried somewhere nearby. To date, he's found a few nails, an old Liberty head penny, and a strange amulet. For free stories, news about past and future releases, and more, visit his website:
